Our very own President, Tarek Beidas, was recognized as a “Rising Star” entrepreneur in the sales and marketing industry and everyone here at Agon Management Group is elated! Tarek was recognized based on the growth of his company as well as the revenue that he has generated for his clients. As a part of this elite award, he was treated to a VIP weekend in LA. And since we couldn’t all go, we made him share his experience!
Tarek left Agon Management Group (McClean, Virginia) and caught a flight out of DC on Thursday. His Spotify station of choice was “New Music Friday” and made for an enjoyable trip all the way to LAX! Once there, he headed over to the Mondrian Hotel in Hollywood where he and the rest of the entrepreneurs being recognized as “Rising Stars” were staying.
“The entire weekend we were treated like celebrities,” explained Tarek. We were being followed around with cameras and being catered to.”
A few highlights of the trip included a wine and paint night for as the reception party and a VIP suite at the Lakers Game. The bus ride to the Staples Center was long due to the typical LA traffic, but enjoyable getting to hang out with fellow entrepreneurs, and there were complimentary beverages. The suite was fully loaded with a buffet and a private bar. Aside from the awesome events, each attendee was even given a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, and had a custom suit fitting where they were able to hand select their favorite fabrics and patterns! We look forward to seeing Tarek’s choices in the up and coming weeks!
So clearly the trip to LA was extremely fun, but Tarek made sure to add that above all, the best part of the trip was really getting to know this group of fellow entrepreneurs and learn a lot of valuable information. He told us that he gained a wealth of knowledge on entrepreneurship and how to take Agon Management Group to the next level.

Agon Management Group has truly exciting breaking news to share. Drumroll please. We have been officially recognized by our client as the top performing partner for the entire year and the entire country in 2015! This coveted award was based not only on generated sales, but also on customer satisfaction and retention, two areas we place tremendous emphasis on.
At Agon Management Group we believe that excellence is a decision. It is the conscious choice to wake up everyday and commit to going above and beyond that which is expected. Upon founding the business in 2014, CEO Tarek Beidas made a commitment to our client and team to operate with the same high-energy and drive that motivates most professional sports organizations. It’s no wonder that with standards as high as ours we’ve achieved such a significant goal.
We are surrounded by examples of excellence everywhere. Outstanding athletes, musicians, actors, and entrepreneurs serve as motivation for small businesses like ours. The Denver Broncos just sealed their 3rd Super Bowl win in 20 years — not because they practiced some of the time, but because they practice ALL of the time. Their organization eats, breathes and sleeps football; and because of that passion and drive, their legacy will live on in the sports world forever. So when you’re thinking about what you want to accomplish in your career this year, ask yourself, “Do I want to be known as the best in the league — or as a person with tons of talent but no follow-through?”.
Pride does not even begin to describe the emotion that we feel in receiving this honor. For 4 quarters, Agon Management Group set the bar for excellence, and we’re not stopping there. Like the Broncos, we want multiple wins back to back. We want to continue to WOW our client, create an even better corporate culture for our team, and most importantly, continue to provide an opportunity for individuals to grow in our Management Training Program.
